Way Out of my Comfort Zone

Okay, I can't even believe I am posting this but I promised you all long ago that I would post some before & after photos of myself. Well, I have been sticking at this weight for a few months now so I thought I would show you the changes that have been made from eating Raw, organic, vegan cuisine. Here goes nothing!

Ugh, is it over yet? I am short of breath and my palms are sweaty! Did I really look like that. It's actually good for me to see these side-by-side. Makes the difference a little bit more noticeable.

For those of you who don't know my story, please click HERE. I am not trying to be Miss Fitness or anything, just a better wife and mom : )

Thanks for entertaining me,

Thanks for the great comments on my blog, congrats to your chia winner...dang, it wasn't me. Oh, I have plenty still but more is always better :)

The Mediterranean salad looks good but I am not a onion or garlic girl so would have to work on that one a bit.

But the star, star, of your posts today....IS YOU!!!!!!!

Congrats on making such huge wonderful changes and for sticking with them for enough time to know that yes, this is a lifestyle change, not just a phase you went thru. You are amazing Nicole and I give you a huge pat on the back!!!!!!

You also have balls of steel to post that pic of you in a swimsuit. I have put pics of myself in a bikini on my blog and right before I hit publish I always have a slight panic attack so in the moment I have had my own balls of steel LOL

You have given life to children, grown people inside your body, you have taken care of your family for years, and it is wonderful to see you taking care of yourself and making such great & lasting changes for your overall health, not just to look better in a bikini :)

Thanks Shannon! You can tell in my face on the before picture that I was not very happy. Raw living has made my life so much fuller!

Thanks Liz, I am enjoying the benefits for sure : )

Thanks Ayla! I didn't fully notice the change until I put the before picture side-by-side to my after picture. Great for motivation!

Thanks Jessica! Turns out hard work and a lot of willpower pay off : )
